The wife knew, as did many people, but it was, for one thing, a vee, not a triad, and for another, it was one of those "I'll look the other way and tolerate it" examples previously mentioned.

I stand corrected. It was all very 'discrète'. Sounds like they met after his death.

"François Mitterrand est mort depuis deux heures. A son chevet, que viennent de quitter Anne Pingeot et sa fille, arrivent Danielle et ses deux fils. Le moment est pénible. André Rousselet, l’exécuteur testamentaire, se racle la gorge. "Pour les obsèques, comment fait-on avec l’autre famille?" interroge-t-il. La réponse de Danielle fuse. "Elle n’a pas à être là." Les deux fils se regardent. "On a discuté, se souvient Jean-Christophe Mitterrand, et assez vite il a paru évident que tout le monde devait être là." Les deux vies parallèles allaient pouvoir se rejoindre."

Here's the background.
Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.
